Brent crude has traded between $100-110/bbl in recent weeks. Economists at ANZ Bank expect the black gold to break higher and reach the $120 mark in the tirhd quarter.
“Oil prices are expected to remain in the $100-110/bbl range through Q2, even if all EU member states agree to a ban on Russia oil. The market will remain sceptical as to the effectiveness of the ban until evidence suggests Russian oil has been fully replaced.”
